UK Trans and Intersex Participants Needed for Art Project

I find out about the coolest projects from @FTMquarterly, and the latest cool project is this one, from Gendered Intelligence.  Note that this is coming up soon, and it's for people who are trans and/or intersex.  From the GI website:

GI's Anatomy: Drawing Gender, Drawing Sex, Drawing Bodies

Are you a trans or intersex person of any age (over 16) who would like to be involved in an exciting new life drawing project?
Gendered Intelligence has been awarded a £30,000 grant from the Wellcome Trust for “GI’s Anatomy” - a series of practical life drawing workshops with transgender and intersex participants exploring the science of non-normative sexed and gendered bodies through art.
The project will include:
  • A series of life drawing workshops drawing trans and intersex life models
  • Presentations from professionals on medical practice around sex and gender, including Mr Nim Christopher (phalloplasty surgeon) and Dr Polly Carmichael (specialist in gender identity development and disorders of sex development (DSD))
  • Group discussions around the science of non-normative sexed and gendered bodies
  • Visits to galleries / art exhibitions to inspire our work
The work produced on the project will then be showcased at a number of exhibitions and online via social media.


We're looking for two groups of people to participate in the drawing workshops:
  • 15 young trans and/or intersex people aged between 16-25
  • 15 trans and/or intersex people aged 26 and over
Sessions will run on 9th February, 16th February, 2nd March and 16th March in London.
We can refund your full travel costs to London to attend the sessions. (UK only).
If you would like to participate in the workshops, please fill in this application form. Participants do not have to model - we are recruiting models separately.

Life models

We are not looking for any more trans life models at this time. However, if you are an intersex person who would be interested in life modelling, please click here for more information and an application form.

Sounds like an amazing project!
